Yea, kind of crazy. I don't think it an accident.

And, I'm fairly certain that is an F-18, but still a cool video.

Anita Sarkeesian is one cute little cupcake.

Proving the point.

Even the cracked article from yesterday's ootb pointed this issue out, and the worse issue that you can't mention it without games flipping their **** in ways more dramatic than anything else can. For some odd reason they view it as a personal attack and get super defensive, irrational, and say the worst misogynistic stuff to prove there's no issue.

Or, people like Cutter who get irate when companies screw him for a profit claim this is fine because companies do it for a profit.

Might want to get your sarcasm meter checked. Not only is it not working, your over-reactive filter seems to be on the fritz too.

Yes, it is something we are considering, not from a business standpoint, but from one of creating quality in our products

Well that's a first. I guess at least they're making it official now that when you buy a Battlefield title at launch, you're buying something barely worthy of a 'beta' tag.

Yea, I thought it pretty telling to admit that quality is not a normal part of their business.

I preorder some from amazon, just to play on launch day. But I only do it knowing I can send it back unopened, if reviews suck.

Wait.. you have to read a review to know if something sucked or not?

Before I put down $60? You bet I read a bit.


No, I get that. But we are talking about pre-orders, and the way it read, it sounds like you are spending the money before you read the reviews.

The fact is that with the economy in the ****ter, more jobs being shipped overseas or given to illegals, it's all that is becoming available for people.

You realize that a higher minimum wage does nothing to help this, and arguably, would make it worse?

That's why these things can't be addressed in a vacuum, and why these single issue protests are a fail from the start. You can't just jack up the wage without putting policies in place that address sending jobs offshore or dealing with the illegal immigration issue, or any other myriad related issues. It's just not that simple.

Raising the wage assumes that another two things will happen:

1) The CEO's will just "suck it up" and let that extra cash pull from their own investments.
2) That people will pay $5 to $7 for a McDonalds hamburger.

Not going to happen.

But you neeeeed that gamma ray shielded, helium-argon encased triple platinum black five foot cable for $80, otherwise you won't get the best signal possible O_O

Monster cables are generic bargain bin garbage. If you really want to preserve the integrity of your signal you use a $1500 cable.

Thanks for the link. Most of those reviews gave me a nice chuckle.

Cutter wrote on May 9, 2014, 12:31:

You do realize that a LIVING wage - not MINIMUM wage - makes for a much stronger economy, right? No, of course you don't. When America was at its peak it had strong unions, trade protectionism, and corporations and the rich actually paid taxes. Yet, for some reason your ilk thought it was best to end all that. Well you see how that's worked out. Oh wait, you don't because you still think millionaires and billionaires still deserve more and working stiffs still deserve less.

It is kind of disingenuous to compare to a time in US history when the economy was mostly building and maintaining a massive war machine, and oil and gas production, none of which our currently policies support.

Look up what McDonalds and WalMart employees in states like North Dakota are making, and tell me those things you cited are necessary for an employer to offer a good wage.

I don't think any store or system should be created to help fools keep their money. This was community policed and taken care of, and that's the way it should be.

In my opinion, if people were a little more critical in how they spent their expendable income (probably at times, not even the expendable part) their wouldn't be such a ripe market for opportunity like this. The whole concept of paying for "early access" or "pre-order" or any case where you are giving money and not getting something tangible in return bothers me on a fundamental level.

Jesus I HATE changing my passwords. Google says I don't have to change my gmail password according to the hit list, but EVERYTHING is tied into my gmail account. Think I should change it anyway?

I'm not sure they would risk being so publicly definitive if it were a concern, so I don't plan to.

You do what you need to do, but I'd rather our government not grow any more than it already has... It's not worth it just to relieve myself of some personal responsibility.

Agreed, and I'll add if we are going to throw money at something, let's find a better way to secure something that doesn't require the storing of a password. That methodology is the Achilles heel of security.

Amazon box is only those people who are Amazon fans, for normal people its useless.

I agree it is useless to anyone not interested in a set-top box, but that could be said of anything anyone is not interested in.

However, if you are in the market for a set-top box, this is the best option out there right now, and, if especially if you are already a prime member, it would be really silly to consider anything else.

It is a good idea, and I'm curious to see how it will work out. However, the cynic in me just thinks that this is nothing but a dev who wants to make cash off an MMO without having to spend time making actual content...

Wow, glad to know I'm not the only one who thought that.

I just tried the demo and it gave me motion sickness. Something about the movement isn't quite right to me.

Can you change the FOV? I get motion sickness from games from time to time,and usually changing FOV will fix it. Unfortunately, not all games let you adjust it (or not easily).
